NPR : U.S. Military Lessons in Iraq 

Nice story by NPR's Eric Westervelt sort of summarizing some of the uncertain lessons from the U.S. led Iraq war. I use the modifiers 'sort of' and 'uncertain' advisedly. When the true picture isn't clear we shouldn't insist on defining it. What we have is a bundle of questions. Too many of us are listening to the spin from partisan TV analysts who try to deflect the hard questions. Eric's report does a good job of raising some of these questions about the wisdom of our conduct in Iraq. We should all insist that he gets answers.
